JAMS (Middle School Ministry) October 2016

JAMS is Sunday Oct 16th at 545pm.  Our session is on "Words".  Words have such power and meaning that we forget how to use them.  Often, we use them without thinking, which causes more harm than good.  The old saying, "Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me" is not true.  Words do hurt.  Ephesians 4:29 calls us to use words of encouragement.  Jammers, join us as we strive to build each other up on this journey of life.  

See you Sunday Oct 16th at 545pm to 8pm in the Lower Hall.  

Retreat Info Session:  Also, parents join us for a brief Retreat Info sessionon the upcoming JAMS retreat.  Sunday Oct 16th after JAMS we will have a Retreat info session from 8pm to 815pm and answer any questions you may have.  Parents, If you are safe environment cleared, join us as chaperones on the retreat.  Send me an email if you would like to attend the retreat to verify clearance.  

Register your Jammer for this amazing Retreat Weekend in Vista on Nov 4th to 6th 2016.  Our youth leaders are planning a fantastic fun and faith filled retreat.  We depart on Friday night and return Sunday morning.  Sign up for the Retreat Here.    Deadline to register is Sunday Oct 16th.  

October 2016 Confirmation & Haven

First, thank you to all who attended the Haven / Confirmation Year 1 retreat.  We had a great weekend of bonding, talking, and growing in our faith.  I am truly humbled by the spiritual maturity of our teens.  Thank you to our musician Gabe Reyes who provided some excellent praise and worship and for Fr. Duy for celebrating Mass with us and sharing his call to the priesthood.  Thank you to all of our Adult Haven Leaders who gave so much to the planning of the retreat.

This Saturday Oct 8th we have our Confirmation and Haven Night.  Confirmation 1 will be talking about Reason & Revelation.  Confirmation 2 will be talking about the Sacrament of Baptism so don't forget to ask your parents about your own baptism as you will have time to share in class.    

Our Haven night is on the theme of Saints and Sinners. We will talk about Halloween, All Saints Day, All Souls Day, and Dia De Los Muertos.  I will be sharing an old Mexican Halloween story of the Weeping Woman.  

Confirmation sessions start at 330pm in the meeting rooms near the parking lot, we continue with Mass at 5pm, then with Haven youth night with dinner, live praise and worship, talks, and small groups until 830pm.   Don't forget to sign in at Confirmation class and Sign out at Haven (two separate sign in sheets).
